Rwanda today is a nation on the rise, powered by resilience, shared values of solidarity, and a purposeful government. Since the genocide in 1994, poverty rates have fallen by half, average income has risen three-and-a-half fold, child mortality has plummeted, and gender equality and government efficiency are a model on the continent. Built upon visionary leadership, Rwanda has achieved most of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and has sustained rapid economic growth for over two decades.
The Government of Rwanda, led by H.E. President Paul Kagame, continues to set bold ambitions to improve the lives and livelihoods of Rwandans. Strong and inclusive growth, sustained over an extended period, is at the heart of these ambitions.
We are supporting the Government of Rwanda on accelerating economic growth in line with its Vision 2050 aspiration of making Rwanda a high-income, high standard-of-living country. We work alongside government counterparts in core institutions responsible for driving private-sector led growth, growth in exports, attracting investment, and improving human capital.
